Frequently Asked Questions
SDR is a radio communication system in which components traditionally implemented in hardware are instead implemented (via custom software) on a personal device or embedded computer system. SDR systems can be adapted to integrate with various communication applications. Once integrated, SDRs can be used to scan for radio frequencies, listen to FM radio, track aircraft with ADS-B, receive GPS signals, dabble in amateur radio, decode digital voice, and even bounce signals off the moon!
Epiq's SDR solutions deliver unparalleled RF performance and flexibility in compact form factors, making them perfect for a range of applications: including mobile, portable, and space-constrained. With a wide tuning range from 70 MHz up to 6 GHz, our products can be used for things like spectrum analysis, RF recording, cellular network scanning, enforcing no-wireless policies, and more.
Yes, our SDRs, SDR platforms, and turnkey solutions are designed to be flexible and easily integrated. That means you can customize any of our products to fit your specific needs.
To get started, request one of our dev kits. We have two options: Evaluation (EVK) and Platform Development (PDK). You can request a dev kit by filling out the form below. Once you do, we'll get back to you with details and next steps.
If you need assistance, Epiq’s team is always here to offer comprehensive support: including detailed product documentation and an active community for peer discussions.
Our SDRs support various data transfer interfaces, including USB 2.0, USB 3.0, and PCI Express (PCIe), depending on the product.
Our SDRs support popular frameworks such as GNU Radio, and others. For programming, we support languages such as C, C++, and Python.
Yes, our SDR products, such as the Sidekiq™ X4, support multi-channel phase-coherent MIMO operations, making them suitable for a variety of applications.
Many of our SDRs can operate both standalone and as part of a host device, giving you the flexibility to use them as needed.
